Here at Von Gutenberg we get our fair share of alternative fashion, events and overall alt. cultural news come across our social network. There is just something about latex that brings out the fun and unusual in peoples’ natures. Folks connect via their love of a catsuit, meet-up at any number of the events we display on Fantasy Event List or engage in plenty of conversations about the latest kinky zeitgeist. Rifle through the outfits on our couture site and you are sure to come across a few things that you could wear to a very formal dress-up event as much as a party where novices are discussing scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey. And with the premier this week of the movie’s first (global) trailer, once again Fifty Shades Of…is on everyone’s lips and our often more than slight fetish-y social world is alight.
By now we could all reasonably assume that almost everyone has heard of, knows a little bit about or maybe has even read any one of the three books in the Fifty Shades series. Writer E.L. James created a phenomena and though often derided with the term “mommy porn” there is no denying how popular her story of Mr. Grey and Anastasia is. These two main characters are represented in the trailer that hit this week, played respectively by Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (see it here).
Is it hot? Kinky? Keeping to the story even? That’s for each individual viewer to decide. But as one of the outlets that often deals with the kinky via the lifestyle and wear of latex, we can’t help but notice when something usually regarded as alternative or at the very least off-the-beaten track becomes mainstream fashionable.
The 50 Shades of Grey Universal film premiers on Valentine’s Day 2015. Will you be there?
